In this case, Brian received priceless advice from top college football coach, Lou Holtz while playing golf at the world-renowned Augusta National Golf Club. While the trip was intended to lift Brian’s spirits after he lost his home and belongings, including his golf clubs, in the wildfires that tore through San Diego in 2007, things didn’t go according to plan. You’ll hear how tough words can bring out your best, the importance of perspective and why excuses never make up for a lack of practice. Most importantly, it’ll encourage you to ask yourself: What would your life look like if you took away some of the excuses?
